JUMSAL S.A. is a Spanish company founded in 1968 and located at Jumilla, Murcia · Spain. Its business activity is based on producing and selling different kinds of high-quality edible salts obtained from its own salt diapir located within its premises.
JUMSAL uses the technique of solution mining to produce saturated brine at 24 °Bé (more than 1,000 m3 per day). Fresh water is pumped underground and into the salt deposit existing in the diapir.
